Development status

  • All projects will be approved in development status only, the MNHHS REDCap project/database status where a user designs, builds and tests study instruments.
  • The requisite approvals must be sought before requesting to move a project into production mode and commence data collection.
  • No research, quality assurance/improvement or administrative project will be moved into production mode until the requisite approvals are demonstrated.
  • No project or research data is to be collected in development mode.

Project approval (production status)

A Project Owner may request to move a project into production mode by:

  2. Select ‘move project to production’ located at the bottom of the page
  3. Complete the ‘Project Production Request Form’ automatically generated by the MNHHS REDCap System Administrator and provide evidence of requisite approvals.
